I am having trouble replying to an email as myself. i can send emails fine, but when i reply to an email i get a from box with my name specifing me as the sender and after i click "send" to send the message i get an error message saying: " you do not have permission to send the message on behalf of specified user". what can i do to fix this problem. i want it to be like before, when i click reply i want it not put a from box in the email. I want it to just send the message as myself automatically.

thanks in advance for the help.

no its not. the last thing that i did was to take out my account and put another account there so my colleague can use his email account from my station. But after two days i went back to my station and took away his account and added mines back. and that was when i started to see the problem.

Try turning off the "from" box:

Here are instructions for "send-as"

Here are instructions for "send on behalf" -- use the second part, the first is using delegates.

If you have Exchange 2007, it's even easier.

i tried the "send as" and the "send on behelf" instructions and it still does not work. the only way that i am able to send a message as myself is to take out my name from the from box. when i take my name out of the from box and leave the from box blank it sends it, but i dont want to have to do that every time i want to reply to a message. how to i take out the "from" box and just send it as myself automatically? i tried doing what 2PIFL said to do, but it did not work for me. i still kept on seeing the from box when replying to an email.

Note: i do not see the "from" box when i create an email, it just comes up when i reply to an email.

what else can i try?

thanks all for the help

Create a message.
Do one of the following:
If you are using the Microsoft Outlook e-mail editor

On the View menu, click From Field.

If you are using Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor

Click the down arrow next to the Options button.

it still says "you do not have permission to send the message on behalf of specified user". the problem is to reply to an email. i want to take the from box out of there and only leave the "to", "cc" and "subject". it gives me the error: " you do not have permission to send the message on behalf of specified user" when i try to reply to an email.

Let me make sure I understand.  Are these emails that were sent to you, or were they sent to another mailbox you have access to and you want to reply to them as yourself?

If you have OWA try replying to emails from it and let us know if that is successful.
